Why we stand out from other Papua New Guinea tour operators.

South Sea Horizons was established in 2007 and is Papua New Guinean owned and operated. ‘SSH’ offers an authentic Papua New Guinean experience offering insight into areas only the true locals know and focusing on delivering a genuinely personal experience to our guests.

Alan Manning is the co-founder of SSH and founder of the Rabaul Cultural Centre. Alan has an unrivalled affinity and relationship with the cultures of the PNG Highlands, Islands and famous Kokoda Track. He hails from a Baai Village in East New Britain and is proud to have been initiated within the Tolai men’s society. However, Alan was also educated in Australia and played professional rugby for the NSW Waratahs affording him an excellent empathy and understanding of PNG/ Australian shared values.

These strong ties to the indigenous community allied with an understanding of both the Papua New Guinean and Australian cultures mean you will be looked after by the best and SSH will deliver on a promise.
